...and a little sparkle.

Add a festive touch to your holiday by serving some sparkling signature concoctions in addition to your traditional bar offerings. These bubbly sips pack a lot of holiday punch, and nothing says "celebration" more than sparkling wines and champagnes. Simple cocktails made with bubbly tend to be easier to whip up for an impromptu get together (think champagne and fruit puree with a garnish) - the perfect answer to simple, yet elegant entertaining. Add a festive garnish (prepped before the party) and you have the makings for the perfect holiday bash! Here are a few seasonal recipes to get everyone in the spirit while adding a little sparkle to this wonderful time of year. Cheers to a very merry holiday! Enjoy!

all wrapped up.

With only four days left until Christmas, it's time to get out the scissors and tape, turn on a movie with a glass of wine and WRAP! This year, I am loving simple brown paper with festive accents. Paper Source has fun silver glitter ribbon that I tied on brown paper, as well as pretty dark navy paper. I also love the plain brown paper with fun neon accents. Tie on a festive ornament or even dip in confetti for an unexpected twist sure to make your loved ones smile!  Whatever you choose, when it comes to Christmas morning, sometimes you can't help but judge a book by it's cover. Here are a few ways to make sure yours look fabulous (and are reached for first!)....
